Storyline

Shown on all television networks simultaneously and at the Chicago Democratic National Convention in August of 1968, this moving film tribute to a man who had hoped to win the presidency created a historic moment when it brought the proceedings to a standstill and the crowd, in tears, to its feet. Commissioned by the Kennedy family, the film begins with the funeral train to Washington, D.C. and follows the triumphs and tragedies in the late Senator's life with extraordinary newsreel footage, archival stills, and home movies. The film was produced in only four weeks, two months after the Senator's assassination, in order to meet the Convention deadline. Guggenheim Productions, with the country's resources at its fingertips, worked around the clock to complete this film honoring RFK's life and the Democratic Party. "Robert Kennedy Remembered" is a poignant film biography that evokes the spirit, quality and commitment Robert Kennedy brought to his life and work. This film went on to win ... Written by Guggenheim Productions, Inc.

Extremely Moving Tribute
24 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just obtained this movie via making a donation to the Robert Kennedy Memorial Fund. My wife and I watched it this evening, and we were so touched that we immediately watched it again. Although it is only 30 minutes in length, director Charles Googenheim captures the essence of the man. Particularly striking are the scenes that show RFK interacting with crowds while campaigning. Younger viewers who have known only pre-packaged presidential campaigns that are driven primarily by carefully orchestrated photo ops will be shocked by the unbounded, joyous and spontaneous nature of RFK's interaction with the crowds that flocked to see, hear and touch him. The movie--and the man who is the subject of the movie--are both true gems.
